HMDmd Inc., a Vista, CA-based company focused on developing and commercializing wearable display systems for surgery, is collaborating with Kopin Corporation to develop the next generation of high performance, wearable displays for medical applications, utilizing the Kopin’s proprietary technology, engineering and manufacturing resources. Kopin is a leading provider of innovative display technologies and critical components for integration into wearable computing systems for military, professional and consumer products.
“A superior performance, specifically designed, medical grade XR wearable display is an important complement to the new technologies which are rapidly transforming surgery and interventional medicine in today’s integrated operating rooms. Lightweight, ergonomic, high resolution, 3D-capable displays are a command and control interface with the systems and information enabling today’s complex minimally invasive procedures, particularly those involving robotics, image guidance and real-time access to critical data,” said John R. Lyon, CEO of HMDmd.
Dr. John C.C. Fan, CEO of Kopin believes wearables must be designed in accordance with specific human factors in order to be effective in critical applications like surgery. “Our extensive experience with military and professional systems translates very well in producing optimal modules, which include our proprietary optics and displays, for surgery and interventional medicine. We look forward to partnering with HMDmd in developing high-performance products for this demanding market,” he said.
